Following discussions between the NSAI, the Department of Housing Planning and Local Government (DHPLG) and Met Éireann, the NSAI is delighted to announce that Met Éireann and the DHPLG have issued a call for a Postdoctoral Researcher to help in the production of a number of meteorological maps which will be used in future national building standards on a 2 year fixed term basis.
The aim of the research is help revise and develop national meteorological data which would in turn help produce national meteorological maps for the following weather phenomena:
- Minimum and Maximum shade temperatures;
- Short duration high-intensity rainfall;
- Wind driven rain index;
- Exposure to frost; and
- Others may be developed if time permits.
The research will also look to develop data sets to help evaluate the overheating risk from solar gain in buildings for the present decade (2020s) and into the future up to 2080.
